Subject: Lyr Add: JOKE AND PUSH ABOUT THE PITCHER
From: Jeri

I did The Joy in Living, by Steven Sellors, and the following song. Though I'd sent it in, but can't find it, so...

JOKE AND PUSH ABOUT THE PITCHER

The silver moon that shines so bright
I swear with reason is my teacher,
And, if my midnight glass runs right,
There's time to drink another pitcher.

CHORUS: It's not yet day. It's not yet day.
Why should we forsake good liquor?
Until the sunbeams round us play
Let us joke and push about the pitcher.

I dearly love a hearty man —
No sniggering milk-sop Jimmy Twitcher —
That loves a lass, and loves a glass,
And loudly calls for another pitcher.

They say that we must work all day,
And sleep at night to wake much richer;
But what is all the world does say
Compared to mirth, my friend, and pitcher.

Though one may boast a handsome wife,
Yet strange vagaries may bewitch her;
Unvexed I'll lead a cheerful life,
And boldly call for t'other pitcher

I learned it from the singing of Jeff Warner. Jeff sings "Joke and pass around the pitcher," istead of "joke and push about."
In "Folk-Songs of the Upper Thames" Morrison & Gibb, Ltd. Edinburgh 1923, Alfred Williams who described it as "A very old song; obtained of David Sawyer"

From: Night Owl

I finally got my mike working... struggling through first time jitters and brain drain, I played "White Choral Bells" and "Sweet Hour of Prayer" on the autoharp; "Walking Cane" and a song for kat (don't know the title)on the guitar. The support in Hearme is wonderful...THANX!!! Liz..I don't think "16 Stones" is destined for oblivion...;o)


06 Aug 00 - 04:33 AM (#272237)
Subject: RE: BS: Uk Hearme
From: Liz the Squeak

Yeah, maybe, but the other one I did probably will, it's changed already!! Mutated even....

Lovely to hear the autoharp for a change, it's usually drowned out by a melodeon or toddler, or played by total twits..... fantastic to hear it as it should be, in intimate, friendly surroundings (and a bedroom in my case!!!)
